  • Managing Contemporary Organisations (MGMT 7087; 2022; MBA)

This course exposes students to some key influences and perspectives on the management of organisations. Its focus is primarily on human issues that affect and are dealt with by managers day-to-day. The course is an extension of "Fundamentals of Leadership" and provides the background and theoretical framework for more advanced studies in business management. Some of the topics addressed may, at first, seem somewhat theoretical or even 'philosophical' in nature, but the whole course is designed to provide students with the foundation for practical action in the field.

"Chad is a great discussion facilitator and sets clear expectations for what is required from students when learning in an external environment. A really interesting and insightful course that teaches leadership skills that managers can apply immediately. My goal was to try any apply a leadership theory with my team each week while learning from Chad and his presenters."

“He loves his job and he knows a lot about OB and HRM! As an HRM student he really made me excited to learn and understand the importance of OB theories and skills to have for the future. Chiu is really good at presenting information and theories. I like how he gives lecture and then we discuss the theories and we are tested on them.” 

“He is one of the best professors I ever had. He always tries to make the class more interesting and fun. He shows the video clips that are related to the materials. This really helps a lot. He also tries to give a lot of feedback to students”

“What more could anyone ask from him? I felt that he did substantially better than many of the other instructors I’ve had at UB, despite the fact that he is still building up his experience. I would say to keep doing whatever he is doing and attempt to build further on his video examples. They are useful and seem to strike a cord with other classmates if they have difficulty understanding something.”
